Women’s films and Italian audiovisual policy, 1964-2016

May 2021

A journey through the Italian film industry in four parts: four films by women filmmakers that narrate the shifting contours of the relationship between national film policy and historically marginalized forms of creativity. From the first postwar attempt at an organic film policy in the 1960s and up to the most recent film law (2016), these four seminal films by Cecilia ManginiAdriana Monti, Roberta Torre and Laura Bispuri tell a story of boundary-pushing cinema and its often uneasy dialogue with the national film industry.

Lucia Cardone on Cecilia Mangini – may 7 2021

Lucia Cardone, Professor of Film History at the University of Sassari, spoke to us about Cecilia Mangini’s career as possibly the first woman documentarist in Italy, her film Essere donne (1964) on working class women’s rights, and Mangini’s complex relationship to feminism.

Still from Cecilia Mangini's film Essere donne showing a woman from the back walking through a field towards a factory in the background.

Annamaria Licciardello on Adriana Monti – MAY 14 2021

Annamaria Licciardello, archivist at the Centro Sperimentale della Cinematografica – Cineteca Nazionale, spoke to us about Adriana Monti’s feminist film work, the context of Italian feminist collectives’ audiovisual and text-based production in the 70s, and the “150 ore” educational initiative for housewives, depicted in Monti’s film Scuola senza fine with Lea Melandri.

Ilaria De Pascalis on Roberta Torre – MAY 21 2021

Ilaria A. De Pascalis, associate Professor of Film and Television at Università Roma Tre, spoke to us about the exceptional case of Roberta Torre’s Tano da morire (1997), perhaps the first and only Italian musical comedy on the mafia, its groundbreaking aesthetics and style and its complex reception and distribution history.

Serena Alfieri on Laura Bispuri – MAY 28 2021

Serena Alfieri, film producer at Vivo film, spoke with us about her experience as delegate producer for Laura Bispuri’s Vergine giurata (2015), explaining in practical detail the varied responsibilities involved in being a film producer in Italy.
